    Shannon you are the liar, Hater, And above all under achiever; Tom Brady The GOAT................Your biased rant, insults come without investigation. You are a fool without understanding. Know this you muppet; LARRY BIRD, MAGIC JOHNSON, COACH DALY AND SEVERAL PLAYERS INCLUDING MJ, all had major issues with the False Isiah Thomas. No he shouldn’t have been on the team because he would have caused division, animosity, distraction etc.... there wouldn’t have been any unity. DREAM REPRESENTED USA. THEY WON AS A UNIT. AND ISAIAH THOMAS WOULD HAVE BROKEN THAT UNIT. COACH daly choose the greater good. So shut your foolish biased nonsense, GET YOUR FACTS, don’t play the devils game and take a small snippet out of Context. Listen to the whole interview. MJ in recorded said his personal views with Isaiah he wouldn’t play with him. But that was the up to the coach. Read from Bird & Magics snippet. book that Johnson and Larry Bird wrote with author Jackie MacMullan. In the book, Johnson says, among other things, that he played a role in keeping Thomas off the 1992 U.S. Olympic team. "I'm just disappointed and hurt," Thomas told The Associated Press on Thursday night before a promotional event for his men's basketball team at FIU. "I never thought it was him who kept me off the Olympic team. That hurt." Thomas' disappointment with aspects of the book were first reported by In the book, which chronicles the careers of Bird and Johnson, the former Los Angeles Lakers great who retired from basketball in 1991 after being diagnosed with HIV said Thomas questioned his sexuality and that several players did not want him on the original "Dream Team" that easily won Olympic gold. "Isiah killed his own chances when it came to the Olympics," Johnson said in the book, an advance copy of which was obtained by The AP. "Nobody on that team wanted to play with him. ... I'm sad for Isiah. He has alienated so many people in his life, and he still doesn't get it. He doesn't understand why he wasn't chosen for that Olympic team and that's really too bad. You should be aware when you've ticked off more than half of the NBA." Thomas said he declined a chance to be interviewed for the book. According to its index, he appears on at least 26 pages. "I wish he would have called me," Thomas said. "I always believed that our friendship was good and close enough that we wouldn't have to talk about this stuff in such a public venue." When Thomas was not on that 1992 Olympic roster, there was widespread speculation that Michael Jordan tried to keep the Detroit Pistons guard off the team. Jordan denied those claims, Thomas said he took the Bulls star at his word, and tried to get past the slight. "I rooted for the USA because I wanted them to win," Thomas said. "You move on. But that was a big hole in the resume. It hurts me that he's taking credit for it." Thomas also denied questioning Johnson's sexuality. In the book, Johnson said the failed relationship with Thomas is "the biggest personal disappointment of my life ... nothing else is even close."

  • MrChocolateMan

    Got all types of luv for Unc, but he still doesn't properly evaluate Lebron's career. We all know that Lebron has great individual accomplishments (8 straight Finals appearances, individual accolades, etc) but he also has multiple mental meltdowns (2010 against Boston in the playoffs, 2011 against Dallas in the Finals, 2018 Finals, game 1: he clearly gave up). Love and Respect to Shannon Sharpe...this was a great interview, no doubt. Kept going back to certain parts to listen to him talk about life, etc....but Lebron cannot be in the Top 3 right now, with only 3 chips out of 9 tries and these multiple mental meltdowns he has on his record...not when when have all time greats with more than 3 chips with less or none of the MENTAL meltdowns (moments in which the mental toughness of a player is questioned) than Lebron has, like a Kareem or Magic. He can't be Top 3. The fact that Lebron faced the Juggernaut Warriors with KD twice is no excuse...especially in 2018, not winning at least that Game 1. Make your teammates better enough to help you win at least 50% of your trips to the Finals.
